We gardeners crave color in our landscapes. We provide that color primarily through the use of colorful bedding plants and bright flower beds. Colorful flower beds are one of the highest maintenance parts of our landscapes, however, so try to add as much color as you can with permanent woody plants like trees and shrubs.

The ideal planting season for hearty trees and shrubs in the Baton Rouge area finishes up around the end of March.
